Charges Dropped Against Man Accused Of Raping Teen

Mecklenburg County authorities say all charges have been dropped against a man accused of raping his adopted, pregnant teenage sister, who was shot to death at a bus stop in Charlotte.

District Attorney Peter Gilchrist said Thursday the charges were dropped against 36-year-old Royce Mitchell because DNA evidence showed he wasn't the father of 15-year-old Tiffany Wright's baby.

Wright was eight months pregnant when she was shot to death while waiting for her school bus on Sept. 14, and her baby died about a week later. Mitchell had been charged with statutory rape and indecent liberties.
